standing next to mexican president enrique pena netto. >> this was a very preliminary meeting. >> the mexican president tweeted quote, at the beginning of the conversation with donald trump i made it clear that mexico will not pay for the wall. still, that didn't stop trump from vowing on day one as president to deport millions living in the country illegally with a new deportation task force and doing his best to end any confusion over his recently muddled immigration stance. >> a border crisis and a terrorism crisis like never before. >> anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained. two million people, criminal aliens, we will begin moving them out day one as soon as i take office, day one. my first hour in office, those people are gone. you can call it deported if you
want. the press doesn't like that term. you can call it whatever the hell you want, they're gone. >> the clinton campaign pounced with this statement saying quote, in his darkest speech yet donald trump doubled down on his anti immigration rhetoric. he showed us very clearly what's at stake in this election by painting a picture of his idea of america, one in which immigrants are not welcome and one in
which innocent families are torn apart. and the clinton campaign released this video attacking trump's visit to mexico. >> who is going to pay for the wall? who? 100%. we did discuss the wall. we didn't discuss payment of the wall. >> clinton's new attack come as the latest fox news poll shows
the democrat beating trump by six points. now, that's a wider lead than the real clear politics average which has clinton ahead by just 4.6 points, but a new polling show that
a record number of americans 56% say they have a negative view of the democratic nominee. that is her lowest rating yet. crowns in a south carolina town has residents watching over their shoulders. clowns flashing laser lights and have tried to lure kids into the woods with large amounts of cash. a greenville resident reported this purported picture of the clown siting. nbc news has not been able to verify the image. clown sightings isn't new. this clown was seen walking
